Course Breakdown

We ask you to arrive at least minutes before your sessions time to allow for kitting up, safety brief and an introduction to the equipment – your paddleboard, leash, paddle and buoyancy aid are all provided. We’ll then practice some basic paddle strokes and techniques and practice board balance on the water. You’ll start off kneeling, but you’ll soon be standing on the board!

We’ll then set off on a short paddle tour, soaking in the scenery and wildlife whilst putting our new skills into action. We’ll finish with a quick cool down and feedback session

Frequently Asked Questions

Not at all! Our SUP Taster Session is designed for everyone.

Absolutely! Children can participate, but will need an adult to participate with them.

Comfortable swimwear or quick-drying athletic wear is ideal, along with trainers you don’t mind getting wet. Remember to bring a change of clothes for after the session, just in case! We don’t currently offer wetsuits, but you are welcome to bring one if you would be most comfortable that way.

Yes, we provide all necessary SUP equipment, including the paddle board and buoyancy aids.

The taster session lasts for 2 hours.

Safety is our priority. If weather conditions are deemed unsafe, we will reschedule your session or offer a refund. However, a bit of rain won’t stop us!

Definitely! We cater to individual bookings as well as group outings and team-building events. 

You must be comfortable with potentially falling off your paddleboard wearing a buoyancy aid, and you should be able to comfortably transition from kneeling to standing. You will enjoy the session with a basic level of fitness, but it is suitable for most! Please just leave us a note on your booking if you are unsure and we are happy to guide you.

Absolutely! You can view our full range of activities and coaching sessions at the bottom of this page. 

Unfortunately, we do not provide flotation devices for dogs at this stage and we would not feel comfortable putting your pet at risk. Plus, these are taster sessions intended for you to learn and become confident on a paddleboard. A dog constantly moving around on the board will make the challenge even harder to start with. If you really want to ‘SUP with your Pup’ then that can be arranged for a private booking or come to one of longer day trips intended for intermediate paddlers, however you will be required to provide your own doggy flotation device.

Although we anticipate that you will get wet on this activity, we try to avoid purposeful immersion in the water where at all possible. Canals are also notoriously unpredictable underwater with rubble and debris from the industrial days from shopping trolleys to push bikes thrown in by local youths, also cold-water shock and hypothermia are real problems we want to avoid.

Barefoot gives the best connection with the board that you could ever want however, we do not know what is lurking under the surface and we would like to keep you as protected as possible. In our experience it is much nicer to walk across the gravel towpaths alongside the canals with proper footwear than barefoot anyday.
